College Structure and Mission

The College of Science and Engineering is committed to providing superior scientific and mathematical education in the context of a major urban university with a liberal arts tradition. The college offers programs at both the undergraduate and the graduate levels in astronomy, atmospheric sciences, biology, clinical science, chemistry, computer science, geology (undergraduate program only), biochemistry, physics, and mathematics through the six departments of Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Geosciences, and Physics and Astronomy. Through the School of Engineering, the college offers civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering. At the graduate level, the school offers the Master of Science in Engineering. The college offers an interdisciplinary major in science through the Center for Interdisciplinary Science and a graduate program in clinical science through the Center for Advanced Medical Technology which provides practical professional experience and research opportunities through collaboration with numerous hospital service laboratories and off-campus clinical research laboratories. Finally, the college offers a multidisciplinary degree program in Statistics drawing from courses in Business, Economics, and Mathematics. The Statistics program is listed in the Department of Mathematics.

The college provides all of its students with a current, relevant, hands-on education in science. Close interaction between student and faculty in the laboratory and field environments fosters the development in the student of the critical skills required in science: the ability for objective analysis of a problem; the ability to design and carry out critical tests; and the ability to make objective interpretations of data.

Students wishing to follow one of the major and/or minor programs in the college should meet with a faculty adviser in the appropriate department immediately after admission to the university. Science curricula are inherently sequential so early advising and satisfaction of course prerequisites are essential to success in timely completion of program requirements.
